Pan-Broiled Young Turkey

Procure a well-fed turkey ten weeks old. Clean it and split it and wipe it off with a damp cloth. Massage with butter, salt and pepper, place in a hot well greased broiler pan, and cook over live coals to a good brown, finishing one side before starting the other. Take out of the broiler pan and lay in a roasting pan; dot with butter and pour 3/4 cup boiling water over it. Finish cooking in a moderately hot oven (375°F) until done, basting several times. Just before serving, pour into the pan 1/4 cup boiling water and 2 Tbs butter; let boil up quickly once or twice and serve on a hot platter with the sauce poured over.
